Listening to your sweet and vibrant voice under the chuppah was a stirring experience. You really brought us all into the beauty of holiness.                Joanne, mother of the bride

I am still so in awe of the work you two did together! You are a brilliant teacher and she simply blossomed under your care.

We knew you two were the perfect choice to marry us, but we weren't prepared for just how beautiful a job you would do! The ceremony was perfect. It was beautiful and meaningful. Traditional and unique. Focused and fun. We will remember it forever. A particular highlight was the Havdallah ceremony. Hearing everyone's voices come together felt like a physical manifestation of all the love surrounding us. So thank you again for contributing to this magical moment for us. We would recommend you two to anyone!
